Financial commitments
Milan 2017

The World Bank considers nutrition investments as a key to human capital development and poverty reduction. Over the next two years (from mid-2017 to mid-2019), at least $1.7 billion in nutrition financing has already been identified for delivery across 30 countries in the IDA18 pipeline. This is a significantly increased commitment and represents strong ownership of this critical agenda by both the World Bank and national governments, since IDA is demand-driven by national governments.
